New to the scene, Under the Weather will be releasing their debut EP, Deserters, on Nov. 24. Today, the band has partnered with HM to premiere the first single from that release, “Sartoris.” The Georgia-based quartet plans to make Deserters available for free on Bandcamp. HM spoke with vocalist Walker Whited about the new single:

“Over the past four years of playing music together, our sound has changed significantly with every release that we’ve had. ‘Sartoris’ combines crunchy verses, a soaring chorus and punchy interludes that meld into a tale of new beginnings, rite of passage and seeing evil as it is, without a lens.”

If you dig the sound, you can check them out on Facebook or Bandcamp.

Let's Get to the Heart of Things

"Music is our everything; we live and die for it. It’s our way to be human, so making songs that make that deep human connection is really important for The Used." In a new age of releasing music in a socially-distanced world, Bert McCracken and The Used face the challenge of human connection when physical connection is taboo. HM contributing writer Andrew Voigt dives in with McCracken about The Used's new album, Heartwork, his absence on social media, and why 2020 will be the year of rice.

The Pop-Punk Silver Lining

"I would hope from all of this madness we will come out of it and we're better equipped to understand and have compassion for each other." Releasing a new album during an historical epoch is certainly unique, and, for Neck Deep's 'All Distortions are Intentional,' the band looks to the future with a hopeful – and, yes, unique – approach.
